Wirelessly Control Final Cut Pro with your iPhone & Playhead

A couple weeks ago, I had the honor of taping a few segments with the guys from MacBreak Studio, a killer video podcast for anyone doing creative work on a Mac.  I was there yapping all about all kinds of mobile stuff, including Playhead from Wind Up Toy, an AWESOME little $2.99 app that lets you remotely control Final Cut Pro with your iDevice.  Now you can subclip from the sofa!

Note: Playhead was $1.99 a couple weeks ago when we taped the segment, but it’s gone up a buck since then — Still, TOTALLY worth it.

Check out the Playhead segment below, or subscribe to MacBreak Studio right in iTunes.

  1. Thanks for the post. Just bought it and started playing around with it immediately. Just the fact that it allows you to duplicate a clip from the timeline into the viewer alone makes it worth buying. (it kind of takes the place of a jog shuttle does it not?)

    Here’s hoping when they update it a bit more they include in and out points and the ability to jump from clip to clip, not just start and end. But in the meantime it rocks and I can see myself using it as a regular part of my editing suite. (*I’m using on iphone)
